In 2015 the 5 acres of Bocombe Mill Cottage Garden will, for the tenth year, be open exclusively for the benefit of the National Gardens Scheme (NGS). All of the money from our Admission Charges and sales of Homemade Teas go directly to the NGS, which supports charities such as Macmillan Cancer Support and many more. Our open days are:

The whole Bank Holiday weekend at the end of May, that’s Saturday 23rd, Sunday 24th and Monday 25th May. From 12 noon to 5pm.
Plus, in June, Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th at the same times

If you're a group of 10 or more you can make an appointment for visits with guided tours from the beginning of March until the end of September.

Sleepy Hornets occasionally become trapped in our conservatories, even at this late stage in the summer. Large and fearsome they almost rattle around the glazing. They’re members of the wasp family, though, of course, much larger than a wasp, worker hornets are around an inch [25mm] long. They build papery nests in hollow trees and have sometimes been found in cavity walls and chimneys. Hornets can be seen in the garden and woodland from May to October; after October just the Queens survive the winter in hibernation. This sleepy hornet strolled around one of our garden cushions for the best part of a sunny, autumn afternoon.
